“Need To Have” Photos
Full group shot: A full group shot is essential for extended family sessions. It’s the perfect way to capture everyone together, and it makes for a great keepsake. You can get creative with the pose or location, but make sure you capture everyone’s faces clearly.
Individual family shots: Take individual family shots of each family unit. It’s essential to capture each family separately, so everyone has a photo of their family to take home.
Generations: It’s always nice to have a photo of the different generations together. Capture grandparents with their children and grandchildren, or great-grandparents with their grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Siblings: If there are siblings within the extended family, make sure to capture them together. These photos will be treasured for years to come.

Cousins: Cousin photos are always fun to take. You can capture them playing together or posing for the camera. These photos will remind them of their childhood memories.
Groupings: Take photos of different groupings within the family, such as grandparents with their grandchildren, siblings with their children, and even cousins of similar ages.
Action shots: Take candid shots of the family interacting and having fun together. These photos will capture the true spirit of the family.
Individual portraits: Take individual portraits of each family member. These photos can be used for social media profiles, or as a gift for grandparents or other family members.
Close-ups: Don’t forget to capture close-up shots of each family member’s face. These photos will show the individual features and expressions of each person.
Fun poses: Have some fun with the family and take some creative poses. You can have the family jump in the air or do a silly pose, and these photos will bring back fun memories for years to come.
